" This is one of the most remarkable editions of the celebrated 
version made by the English exiles whilst residing in Geneva. Thb 
was for a long time the favorite version with the Puritans both in the 
Old and in the New World. Our Pilgrim ancestors prized it highly, 
and used this version almost altogether during the early days of the 
colonies. The marginal notes were greatly esteemed by them ; and 
when our present authorized version took the place of this, they 
complained that ' they found it difficult to read the word of God 
understandingly without the Genevan spectacles.'" — Note by George

A curious Latin poem on the great Pox or Lues Veneria, com- 
monly called the French disease. Many years after the first publica- 
tion of this poem, Des Sauvages, the medical -writer, took the name 
invented by Fracastorio for the hero of his poem, and applied to 
the disease, with which it has ever since been identified.

mentioned on page 435 (in a note ): 

" Twenty-five copies of the original ebony-spectacle, engraved por-

broken up-" 

It contains also the facsimile plate, by G. Lewis, from a missal 
executed by Francesco Veronesi. 

" This work may be considered as a continuation of the Biblio- 
mania, the same characters being introduced in the dialogues. From 
the information which it contains, and the splendor of the decorations 
and printing, it will ever be considered as a model of excellence and 
good taste in typography and the arts. Both the copperplates and 
the woodcuts which embellished the work have been destroyed."

century and the Editiones Principes. It is compiled with the great- 
est care and industry, and those who have had occasion to consult 
its pages can testify to its accuracy and great utility. The collection 
is the finest private one in Europe ; the catalogue will ever be re- 
garded as of the first importance to the theologian, the historian and 
the critic, and as a perfect model for the bibliographer." — ■ Lowndes

The author was peculiarlywell fitted to 'grapple with the difficul- 
ties of so intricate a subject, and it will be found that he has dis- 
charged his task in a manner to deserve general approval and admira- 
tion. His happy choice of subjects, all of them taken from originals, 
his ingenious grouping of them in harmonious forms, his wonderful 
accuracy in drawing, and his perfect fidelity of color are only equalled 
by the profound knowledge which has enabled him to combine so 
vast a collection in historical order, and yet in a classical form.

3260 Shakespeare, William. The Works of; the text formed 
from a new collation of the early editions, to which 
are added all the original novels and tales on which 
the plays are founded : copious archaeological annota- 
tions on each play, an essay on the formation of the 
text, and a life of the poet; by James O. Halliwell, 
Esq. The illustrations and wood engravings by Frede- 
rick William Fairholt, Esq , 16 vols.; — A Calendar of 
the Stratford Records, i vol. Together 17 vols, folio, 
half roan, uncut edges. London, 1853-63 

Privately printed, and only 150 copies. See Mr. Halliwell's and 
Mr. Adlard's (the printer) autograph attestations on the fly-leaf ; 
This copy No. 18. 

The first volume of this magnificent edition of the entire works of 
Shakespeare was issued in 1853, under the following conditions : 

" The impression of this edition of Shakespeare will be most 
strictly limited to one hundred and fifty copies, and each copy will 
have the printer's autograph certificate that that limit has been 

"All the plates and woodcuts used for this work will be destroyed, 
and no separate impression of any of them will be taken off." 

In the original Prospectus the Editor says, " Each play will be 
accompanied by every kind of useful literary and antiquarian illus- 
tration, copious philological notes, complete copies of all novels, 
tales or dramas on which it is founded, entire impressions of the 
first sketches and all documents of a really illustrative character. 
Some of these will be novelties to the student ; others will be col- 
lected from a variety of sources not readily accessible, being dis- 
persed through a number of volumes, some of great rarity ; while 
the reprints of ancient tracts already well known to Shakespearian 
readers, the insertion of which is of course a matter of absolute 
necessity in a monograph design, will be carefully re-collated with 
the originals. In fact no pains will be spared to render this edition 
the most complete in every respect that has yet been produced ; 
superseding entirely the variorum edition of 1821, with the addition 
of all Shakespearian discoveries of any importance which have been 
made since that period. The work will be copiously illustrated by 
facsimiles and woodcuts, the direction of which has been undertaken 
by Mr. Fairholt, who has also most kindly promised to assist me in 
the selection. 

"The engravings throughout will be rigidly restricted to subjects 
which really elucidate the text, giving representations of articles 
mentioned by Shakespeare, or to which he may refer, however 
slightly, thus serving as pictorial notes to his works." 

Only 75 copies were issued of the Calendar of Stratford Records.

" There was an old flat-boatman, 
He lived in the E-li-noy. 
The natives called him Abram, 

He was their greatest joy; 
They honored him and petted him, 

Unto his great delight, 
Said he was some at splitting rails, 

And punkins in a fight. 
Old Abram then was left alone ; 

His Christian guests departed, 
To await their hour of coming doom. 

Which found them broken-hearted ; 
Old Abe met death, as he had lived. 

And the Yankees all wore crape, 
And on his tombstone Davis wrote, 

'Hie facet, Illinois Ape.' "

Royal 8° new cloth. Great Totham, 1841-46 

A very large collection, Dobell's Catalogue only mentions 51 of 
these pieces. 

"There is a short memoir of Clark in the 'Dictionary of National 
Biography.' According to this he was born in 1806, and bred a 
farmer. He lived for a good many years at Great Totham Hall, 
where he set up his private press, and where all his brochures were 
printed. Afterwards he removed to Heybridge, where the latter 
years of his life were spent in almost complete seclusion. He was 
buried there in March, 1880. The writer of the notice characterises 
his original productions as being 'exceedingly silly and indecent.' 
This may apply to a few, but it is much too sweeping as applied to 
the whole of his writings. Not much, indeed, can be said in favour 
of them; but still, those who love literary quaintness or oddities, 
and seek for out-of-the-way curiosities, will not despise the produc- 
tions of Charles Clark." — Bertram Dobell's Catalogue of Privately
